* Lock-Up from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' (and CanonImmigrant to the Franchise/{{Batman}} comics). In the animated series, Lyle Bolton was once the new Head of Security at Arkham Asylum, but whose methods were so harsh and extreme that everyone at the asylum was afraid of him, particularly Scarecrow. After being relieved of his post, he would go on to "arrest" those who he deemed to be at the root of Gotham's problems, including the mayor, Commissioner Gordon, reporter Summer Gleeson and the chief doctor of Arkham ([[SarcasmMode coincidentally]] the very same people who exposed his abuse of power and had him fired) before being stopped by Batman and Robin.

* Locksmith in the MarvelUniverse who used to imprison super-humans, feeling their feats overshadowed the achievements of ordinary humans. Most of his victims were {{Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain}}s who SpiderWoman (Jessica Drew) had fought during the run of her own comic, but eventually he managed to capture Tigra and Spider-Woman herself. While the design of his prison to prevent his captives from using their powers to escape was considerable, the heroine managed to outsmart him. (First she had Tigra insult Poltergeist to start a fight, which shorted out the power that maintained the cells. Then she convinced Gypsy Moth, to use her powers of cloth to switch their costumes. The Locksmith was fooled, and put Spider-Woman and Gypsy Moth in the wrong cells after the power was restored, and the one designed for Gypsy Moth couldn't hold Spider-Woman. Once everyone was free, the Locksmith stood no chance.

* The Master Jailer from ''{{Superman}}'' comics (Deathtrap in PostCrisis continuity) is a sort of example, except he's an out and out villain who just likes the power trips provided by his powers. And of course he's an unusual example because he actually has powers to facilitate his fascination with incarceration. Also of note is the fact that he was the architect who designed the supermax prison in Metropolis, Stryker's Island.

* Castle Captive, who appeared on an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'', was another villain who was both the Jailer and the jail. [[GenusLoci A living, intelligent castle]], it appeared in the human world once every hundred years, its appearance luring travelers to it, only to trap them inside and after 24 hours, carry them to whatever realm it called home, for... [[ForTheEvulz well, some reason known only to himself]] but he did seem to be [[{{Sadist}} a cruel creature who liked seeing victims suffer.]] Escaping it was almost impossible, because it could control every part of itself, doors, furniture, even items as small as silverware, and use them against anyone who caused trouble. One prisoner was Nanny Smurf, who was rescued after the Castle appeared a century after being kidnapped.
